INSTALLING JAVA PLUGIN
Java can pose a bit of a problem. Sun does have it´s own view on
packaging software, not only for Star Office but even worse for Java,
that is why I collected some bits and pieces that can help.
Download it here:
. . . get the 'jre-6u11-linux-i586.bin' ( not the rpm ) the package that ends on ".bin
CD to the directory you downloaded jre-6u11-linux-i586.bin ( your version
might have different numbers )
Other browsers will look for their plugins in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins too !
( Exception: Depending on the version of Firefox you additionally need to put a link to the libjavaplugin_oji.so in your /firefox/plugins directory too )
Now restart your browser, type 'about:plugins' in the address bar and see if java is listed.
